Never actually made by VW. Someone duped the VW style in making this ad.

Also a wicked dupe of a post as well.

Last time I saw that video, I had just got back from a day of hunting dinosaurs, riding my mastadon.

oh, FUCK snopes and FUCK volkswagen!!! fucking politically correct cunts!!!


So just who produced this offensive spot? The ad doesn't appear to be a spoof put together by some rogue amateur filmmakers, as its production values (e.g., shot on 35mm film, probably at a cost in the tens of thousands of dollars) would indicate. Paul Buckett, a Volkswagen spokesman, has denied that the automobile manufacturer had anything to do with it:

Two creatives known to our advertising agency, DDB (Doyle Dane Bernbach) London, sent in this work on spec. The agency wouldn't have anything to do it. I can only assume the people who made it put it on the web.

We were horrified. This is not something we would consider using: it is in incredibly bad taste to depict suicide bombers.

It gives the impression we've condoned or supported it, and is potentially very damaging to Volkswagen. Our legal department is planning an action . . .'

yes i know its old, yes i know its not real. i was playing along for people who havent seen it because i thought it was funny and it was new to me. i have forgotten how overrun this place has become with "dupe" faggotry.

the video is funny, if you've seen it in the past im very impressed at how cool you are, now please STFU and let someone get a laugh out of it

How could that be considered offensive? I thought it was halarious, it might bring back some bad memories for people that were victims or knew victims of one of those attacks, but you can never predict what will bring back a sad or fearful memory in someone.

You know it's old and you know it's not real, but you seem to try to pass it off as both in your original post.

Why not title it "oldie but a goodie" or "for those who haven't seen this joke in a while"? Just don't get offended when called out on something that is fake and a dupe when you purposefully try to make it sound like it's neither.

wombat, i didnt try to play it off as anything. its painfully freakin obvious it is a put-on, its a joke. my mistake was that i forgot about all the fags that spend hours on this board being the 11th person to say "dupe" or "last year called" or whatever else makes them feel a little less pathetic about spending 12 hours a day online and getting 10,000 posts a year.
